3D Fiber Lashes: Do they really work?

Recently one of my friends joined a direct sales company called Younique. It’s a newer company and they sell products like brushes and mineral makeup like eyeshadow, blush, and a slew of other things. Being a makeup fiend she asked me if I would be interested in testing it out and I said sure. Pretty much everyone I know is in a perpetual state of searching for the worlds best lashes and her company has a product called “3D fiber lashes.”  What the heck, send em over.

I have used similar products with Blinc (which I adore) but I was still unsure what to expect.

The little kit with the lashes arrived in a case with a “transplanting gel” and a “fiber lash”. This part is important…the transplanting gel is NOT mascara. I made the mistake the first few days I used it in thinking the gel was actually mascara and could not figure out the reason my results were not as strong as the advertisements the company made. Using the gel and lashes alone does work and you can wear it that way, but if you want dramatic lashes, you need to pair it up.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

Packaged in two separate bottles, the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers are used together to enhance and magnify your OWN lashes. Watch your lashes transform into something you only dreamed of! A 300% increase in thickness and volume to your lashes while still looking completely real and natural. Potentially “mood-altering” 3D Fiber lashes will quickly become your favorite makeup accessory!

Then I tested it out with mascara on one eye and a light bulb went off.

(this is why you read instructions on things first kids)

  • Left eye (facing the picture) is transplanting gel + fiber lashes
  • Right eye (facing the picture) is my mascara + the fiber lashes

I think the difference is pretty obvious.

Now that I had it all figured out, I used it today with my normal mascara (I wear Lorac Pro) and added the fiber lashes via the wand (I skipped the transplanting gel)  and the results were great!

Application is simple.

Step 1: Apply your mascara

Step 2: Apply Fiber lashes. They go on like mascara with a wand.

(not my shot, this belongs to the company)

 She also sent me some small samples of the mineral makeup.

I want to say that this past year I have tended to shy away from mineral makeup. My son has discovered how to take the lids off and let’s just say mineral makeup is VERY VERY messy when a 2 year old gets a hold of it. I quite literally threw away 15 containers of Bare Essentials just a few weeks ago.

I also find that the little dust particles from the minerals fall on my cheeks during eyelid application and I end up cleaning off more than I put on. That being said, if you do love using mineral makeup, it says that their Pigment Powder is 100% natural, free of chemicals, free of talc, oils and preservatives so I suggest giving it a try. At only $10, the investment is very reasonable.

This is me sampling “curious” and “flirty”.

My final thoughts?

I really like them. In the beginning I thought I was gonna come here and tell y’all that they were just alright and not worth the $29 price tag. Now that I realize you have to put on mascara first, I find them to be really pretty, give a wide dramatic look, and they stay on the entire day (just like regular mascara application).  They are water proof but come off easily in the shower and overall a fantastic product to keep in your makeup kit.

I also recommend using Lorac Pro along side them if you like this look, which you can pick up at Ulta. (Psst, best mascara I have ever worn for dark full lashes)

  1. I don’t normally post on blogs but I had to take the time to say I have tried many different mascaras varying in price and brand in search of that long and full lash look. I was obviously not blessed with beautiful lashes. I have also used falsies on special occassions. I heard about the 3D lashes from a friend who told me she had tried it and loved it. This is the only product that has worked for me. It is easy to apply and just as easy to wash off. I absolutely love it. Nothing I have ever tried has given me the look that I can now get with the 3D lashes. I do get some of the fibers falling on my eyes at times but that is no different than any other product. I am not a salesperson. I just wanted to post the comment to help anyone searching for fuller looking lashes from wasting their money on other products that promise and don’t deliver.

    • Carmen, thankyou for stopping by! I love it too which is why I decided to sell. I am glad you love your Younique!

    • Jennifer says:

      To aviod the fibers slowly falling a little through out the day, when your finished go back over your lashes with the gel again or your mascara. Just to “seal” the fibers in.

  2. Sherine says:

    I tried the younique fiber mascara but I am allergic to it. Any advise?

  3. I thought for sure this stuff wouldn’t work. I finally tried it and fell on love with it. I’m not a sales person but I knew instantly I had to spread the word. We’ve all tried expensive mascaras and they never live up to their claims. This mascara really does work an dive started using some of their other products. It’s not a rip off, if you have trouble with fibers flaking then you need to use more transplanting gel;). Their Brilliant moisturizer is pricey but has been the most amazing product for my sons eczema, truly the ONLY product that has ever worked.

    • Magan,

      thanks for your testimonial! If you need any assistance or have friends that are looking to purchase, I am happy to help. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

      • Thank you, I actually started selling Younique products almost immediately. It been less than a month but I’m liking it. I don’t usually post on blogs and such but I truly love this mascara and so far everything I’ve tried from Younique’s line.

    Just got my Younique 3D Lashes and I LOVE them!!! Best 35.00 I ever spent!! I’ve found my new mascara!!!

  5. Jennifer McSwain says:

    I have been thinking about joining since im a single mom and need the money really bad. Is it worth it? I don’t want to fully commit if its a waste of time. I just want to do my full research before starting. Any tips or advice? Thank you in advance.

    • Jennifer,

      I think its very smart for you to take time to research if this is the right company for you. I encourage you to learn more about my team by going to http://www.AsYouniqueAsYou.com , where I have compiled information on the company as well as some information about myself as a leader. This is also my blog here that you are on, but I separated some of my Younique info to make it easier. I am happy to give you a call at your earliest convenience if that would make it easier.

    Heidi must be doing something wrong because mine sure didn’t flake off and I even slept with them on to see if they would fall all over the pillow during the night. NOPE! They still look just like they did when I put it on and I have NOT lost any fiber.

  7. Stefanie says:

    Heidi, how were you applying them? If you don’t apply the transplanting gel both before AND after applying the fibers, they will flake. Might that be the problem?

  8. I used some and at first I thought there was ok but then later on in the day the fibers flaked off into my eyes and really drove me crazy. I’ve tried it a few more times and I just really can’t get the tarantula leg lashes like the other girls plastered all over my Facebook wall do. I think I’ll stick with a cheaper brand that works better and doesn’t flake off into my eyes and blind me later on in the day. No thanks. This stuff is a rip off.
